Proprioception

8

Goals of PT?

Improved Proprioceptive Ability
Gait Normalization
Return to functional Activity

9

Modalities are also known as ?****

therapeutic physical agents

10

Electromedical equipment used to generate heat, cold, sound waves, electricity and/or compression to aid in the healing process

Modalities

- Specific types --> determined based on diagnoses

11

direct heat and cold applications

relaxation of muscles, increase blood flow, soften tissue

heat

12

direct heat and cold applications
decrease/increase blood flow, decrease edema, decrease pain
